We are especially excited because March is the month that we are “officially” celebrating our 70th Anniversary and we want you to join us for this special day! Our Official Celebration will be on Friday March 27th, 2020 at the Bessie Smith Performance Hall (200 E. MLK Blvd. Chattanooga, TN). You are welcome to “Come and Go” between 4:30pm and 6:30pm, we will be having a short presentation at 5:30pm. You can RSVP on our website www.theuniongospelmission.org, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 423-752-4998.
You may ask yourself, “What are they actually celebrating?” I’m glad you asked! You see, 70 years is best calculated in how we have been able to impact lives. In the last 70 years, the Union Gospel Mission has provided over 2.1 million meals to the hungry, we have given over 1.1 million safe nights sleep to the homeless, we have seen over 26,000 people make a profession of faith in Jesus, and we have given untold pounds of cloths to those who were without. Since 2003 we have had hundreds of men come through one of our transitional housing programs and 60 Graduates of our G.R.A.C.E. Discipleship Program.
These are the lives that have been impacted and changed by your partnership with the Union Gospel Mission. The hurting and hopeless are why we want to march forward and continue “Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!”. Won’t you help us to “March” forward to impact lives?
Serving Christ and the Community,
Rev. Jon Rector
